Synopsis of A Political Affair
Stephen McEvoy never expected to fill his father’s U.S. Senate seat at such a young age-or to fight to keep it. When clever Anne Norwood interns in his office, Stephen dismisses her as another pretty face-until her independent streak catches his attention. They’re both too smart to fall for one another, yet they do. During a tough election, their relationship is an impossible political gamble. Campaigns-like love-are either won or lost.
Rae’s Thoughts on A Political Affair
I really enjoyed the political angle of this love story. It gave a behind the scenes look at the campaign process, and what goes into the infamous mudslinging campaigns that we see during any election. Personally I’ve always found such politics to be disheartening, but sometimes they are necessary to divert the ever growing attention away from matters the public may not grasp. This is how I felt about the budding romance between Stephen and Anne. Two people who by American standards should not be pursuing a relationship, but the truth is, who are we to say a politician can or can not fall in love with?
Overall it was an entertaining read that I didn’t want to put down. The multiple POV style was easy to follow, and I enjoyed reading from the different perspectives. The pacing was well done, and the twists of suspense were dead on. I’d say that anyone who enjoys contemporary romance and/or suspense would enjoy this as much as I did.
